"We applaud Vanderbilt Children's Hospital for their continuous efforts in pediatric care. We (TSU Football) want to continue our relationship with the hospital's staff and patients and are always glad to help lift their spirits," said Reed. This is another example of our commitment to the Nashville community on-and-off the field and to show that TSU cares."

During the visit, the Tigers visited the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt, which houses and treat some of the region's most delicate cases, having served patients from 44 states in the past year.

The hospital has been recognized as one of the premier adolescent care center in the nation and is the most comprehensive children's hospital in the state. They treat all children regardless of financial ability.
